Algebra revision activities: cards to sort and solve: higher
A set of 28 algebraic expressions (mostly linear, some polynomial) that students sort into four categories (expressions, equations, substitutions, and factorisations) to revise their algebra. Once sorted, students can solve/simplify the expressions. Used as a quick revision starter.

Test an old saying about measurement
“Once around the waist, twice
around the neck;
Once around the neck, twice around
the wrist.”

Is this true? How accurate do your comparisons have to be? How many different people do you need to try it on?

AQA Unit 2 quick revision questions with answers
I used these in a revision workshop on the Tuesday before the Unit 2 GCSE Maths exam for the AQA Modular syllabus.

(Everyone wants to put 4 down as the answer to 1)

Algebra and percentages/fractions and number/factor/multiple/squares/cubes questions with answer. All rapid fire 'headline' questions. I have longer 'starred' questions from the AQA ExamPro service ready as backup.

AQA Unit 1 quick revision questions with answers
I used these on Monday am for a quick last minute revision workshop over lunch to get the brains working. Mostly ok and feelings positive after the exam.

Data handling and calculator percentages with answers. Just the short sharp questions. No pictograms.

Q5 catches everyone, they all want to divide 32 by 3. I draw a fraction wall like graphic with a line divided into 3 and ask for labels...

Q8, they have to measure the angle for Cars.

Graphs 5: Plotting formulas
Two sides of A4 with some formulas to plot and an exercise about the characteristics of a set of lines deduced from their formulas alone. Students need squared (0.5cm) paper for this one and will need to draw axes.

Two sides on cumulative frequency and the box and whisker plot
A two sided handout on cumulative frequency curves and the box and whisker plot. This topic is a 'grade b' topic in the new AQA syllabus so I needed to differentiate for students on an evening class who may wish to take Unit 1 and Unit 2 at higher level. Worked ok with mymaths 'lesson' as backup.

emergency protractors
The cupboard was bare, so I used the eps version of the vector drawing of measuring instruments mentioned below to isolate a 180 degree protractor scale. I used inkscape to remove the delicate gradients (which just confused my laser printer) and then copied the grouped drawing so I have 6 protractors per A4 page. Laminated 3 pages of them in assorted colours and cut them out.

Accuracy ok for drawing a pie chart given a pre-drawn reference circle.

Fractions and percentages with a calculator
Covers a little revision on metric conversion and finding the HCF of two numbers to motivate cancelling down (section A, B). Then finding value of a fraction using a calculator (C) and writing one quantity as a fraction of another (D). Moves into finding the value of a percentage (E) and then writing one quantity as a percentage of another (F). Brief look at percentage increase and decrease (G) and Index numbers, new on the GCSE syllabus (H). This handout is used to focus a lesson delivered in a community centre with a small flip-chart. There are card sorting activities and worksheets to go with it.

Quick module 5 questions
These questions were written to go with a set of revision flashcards downloaded from TES net. I selected the flashcards relevant to Module 5 of the AQA GCSE (most of them apart from the data handling ones).

The questions on this worksheet are designed to mix some of the 'tricky' questions that are found on the Module 5 with the more straightforward calculation questions.

Operation card sort exercise
A collection of 30 short whole number questions on cards. Each question can be categorised as addition, subtraction, multiplication or division. There are four cards with the titles of the operations. Students were asked to work in groups to sort the questions into each operation and to make a note of the keywords that told them which operation was relevant.

Used with L2 students for revision and with L1 students for number practice. You need to set your printer to print the cards 4 to a sheet.

Regular polygons investigation table
Just an A4 sheet with a table to capture data about regular polygons. The columns are headed Name, Number of sides, Total interior angle, Interior angle, Exterior angle. There are six rows, and my lesson plan is to look at the equilateral triangle, the square, the pentagon, the hexagon, the heptagon and the octagon and then go for a formula based on the patterns.

Formula match starter
Match the correct calculation with the situation described in words. Part of a lesson to support students taking the Numeracy Certificate Level 2 course.

This starter is designed to encourage visual recognition of the main types of formula so we can discuss the 'trigger' words in the questions. A later activity gets down to discriminating between the correct calculation and the common incorrect ones for each type of formula

Mean and median of wage data
If you make people redundant and those who remain take a pay cut, it is possible for the mean wage to rise. The median gives a clearer picture of the changes.

Eval: students got the point very quickly (a touch of the paulo freires). The feeling was that it would have been better to have different wages rather than the same figure each time, so I'll modify this handout. That modification would also increase the usefulness as a revision aid for mean and median. The percentage change calculation caused some searching in notes as well.

Another one side 10 minute question to check recall of the vocabulary, spotting the outliers and drawing line of best fit. Data set about age and blood pressure after exercise. One data point has been fiddled so it is clearly an outlier. Asks for how removing this point would change the correlation. Line of best fit and a prediction question.
